    I just have a couple questions on Sonotube.
    1. Is Sonotube the same as Permatube Redline? Any benefits of one over the other?
    2. Is $150.00 for a 12' piece of 30" diameter Sonotube a decent price?
    Seems kinda expensive for what basicly is cardboard.
    Thanks
    Earle

    That sounds VERY expensive. I paid $40 for 2 6' sections of 24". Try and find it in shorter sections and I think you will find that the price will come down.
    As for the difference, I don't know but anything resembling Sonotube will work [​IMG]

    Hi!
    $150 is high retail. I got my last 12 foot 30" for $100. My 12 foot 24" cost about $75.
    Where is Wallingford? If it is New England, come on up to my place and you can have my left over 30" tube. It is about 6 feet tall. Ill even help you cut the caps if you want.

    Gregg,
    Your making it hard to resist building this sub.
    You may be getting a email in the near future to set up a date to meet and start this project.
    Wallingford is in Connecticut just North of New Haven.
    How far up in Maine are you?
    The main reason I want to build this sub is that my room is accusticly difficult, with about 3/4 of the leftside of the room opening to another room. My 20-39's sound the best in the right front corner but I cant even come close to balancing the sub to 85db. I'm going to try a BFD to try to help this. I also have a few peaks to work out. I think this is why I'm struggling with other placement options.
    Thanks for the offer, I let you know when I'm ready to start.
    Earle
